LightBenders: Free Photography Training for Students

LIGHTBENDERS Institute of Photography


Free Photography training

for therapy and fun


LightBenders Institute of Photography is currently accepting student applications for its 2019 season. In its third year of operation, LightBenders is an alternative therapy program which uses photography as a creative approach for veterans struggling with PTSD, MST and depression. During the free, 8-week program that begins in April, students are issued professional-level cameras and lenses and receive both classroom and field training in its operation from photography instructors who are veterans themselves. The course is offered at two locations: the Vet Center in Spokane Valley and VAMC Spokane. To apply, send an email to
